    Default Cheap tyre brands - any good ?

    Hello
    In my search for cheap temporary tyres for a restoration project a found these people
    https://www.tyrewholesalers.co.za/pr...ssenger-tyres/

    I found the size I wanted at very good price but then browsed their offerings and some of the offroad tyres seems well priced.

    So are these acceptable budget tyres or stay-far-away tyres?

    Brands are Durun, Cachland, Comforser etc.
    According to the person I spoke to some of these brands are well known in the truck industry and they have been selling the passenger tyres for the last 10 years without issue (not that they will tell you of any issues, but same goes for other tyre dealers I think)

    What do you think?

    I had Duran before on my Bantam 1.3 pickup. They were not bad at all.
    I cannot confirm the total millage out of a set as I sold it before they were done, but I did about 40k kms on them and they still had plenty tread left.

    Price wise, unbelievable.
    I bought a set of 245/70R16 A Plus 929 Chinas for my Jeep a couple of months back.
    Just one problem , punctures on nearly very trip. Fortunately no tyre write off so far
    With my previous set of Conti s , not a single puncture.
    In hind sight I would rather have paid more. and gone for a reputable brand.
    Milage wise you get what you pay for .

    I bought the Landy with Durun's fitted.

    Did a rocky trail twice and did not deflate. Nothing happened yet.

    Looks like a BFG rip-off thread
    Always think: Could this be sarcasm?
